I enjoy Victor Davis Hanson‘s historical perspective on modern day events. He makes the stories of ancient Rome and Greece come alive and his lectures on WW2 are detailed and much different than we hear from textbooks.
Hanson is an American classicist, military historian, columnist, and farmer. He has been a commentator on modern and ancient warfare and contemporary politics for National Review, The Washington Times and other media outlets.
A couple of recent interviews on current topics rung true for me. Give a listen to this podcast and a new interview and catch a historical perspective on current events.
